The rational learning framework assumes that except for a finite number of parameters the agents already know the ‘true’ model of the economy and that this is ‘common knowledge’. This is almost informationally as demanding as the REH itself (cf. Bray and Kreps 1987). An informationally less demanding learning framework is the ‘boundedly rational model’ studied by DeCanio (1979), Blume and Easley (1982), Frydman (1982), Bray (1983), Bowden (1984), Bray and Savin (1986), Fourgeaud et al. (1986) and Marcet and Sargent (1989a, b).

15) which translates the original problem of forming expectations of prices to that of forming expectations of the ‘exogenous’ or ‘forcing’ variables of the system. This is a general feature of the REH and is not confined to the present example. The solution of the rational expectations models requires a complete specification of the processes generating the forcing variables. 7) discussed in the previous section now clearly reveals the main differences that exist between the REH and the extrapolative expectations hypothesis.
